I was nominated by The Young Culture to take part in the Sunshine Blogger Award which I'm so happy to be a part of. This award is given to bloggers for being creative, positive and inspiring so I'm so glad I was thought of! Thank you so much for nominating me for this lovely tag! 

The rules are to:
Thank the person who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.
  • Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you. 
  • Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions. 
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog. 

The questions set out for me as are follows... 
  • What’s your favourite thing about blogging? 

My favourite thing about blogging is that it gives me a platform to talk about what I am passionate about and I have met sooooo many lovely people as a result of blogging!
  • What are the most useful things you’ve learnt from blogging?

Definitely organisational skills! I think I've always been pretty organised but I've really had to stick to a schedule and write everything down! 
  • When you first started blogging, did you have a plan of what you were going to blog about? If so, did it change? 

I've always known I wanted to blog about beauty, but I never really had a 'plan' in the strictest sense. I knew what I wanted to do and that was it!
  • If you could change one moment in time, without consequence, what would you change?

There's so many things I'd love to change, but I believe everything happens the way it does for a reason. So I wouldn't change anything (although there's many things I wish never happened!)
  • Do you have a hero/heroine? If so, why are they your hero/heroine?

I don't have a hero or heroine but I look up to my mum so much. She has four kids, including me!, and is a nurse in the NHS. She works full-time saving lives (literally, she works in A&E) and I just admire her dedication so much. 
  • What’s your favourite song lyric?

My favourite lyric is "And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.” from The End by The Beatles. 
  • Do you play any instruments? If not, do you wish you did + which one(s)?

I used to play guitar and keyboard until I got bored of them. I wish I could play piano. 
  • Which three songs would you choose to represent your life?

Money - That Poppy (as I am secretly a material gal)
East of Eden - Zella Day (my best friend showed me Hypnotic by Zella Day, and now whenever I listen to her album it makes me think of when we went to Paris together.)
and Brooklyn Baby - Lana Del Rey (it puts me in the holiday mood and reminds me of sunny days!)
  • Who is/are your favourite YouTuber/s? Why?

Emily Canham and Saffron Barker. I watch a lot of YouTube but I always go back to these two YouTubers as they seem so lovely and friendly on camera and I just want to be friends with them!
  • What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to? If you haven’t been to any, who would you most like to see?

The best concert I've ever been to was One Direction on their last tour as this was where me and Francesca became best friends! After this concert, we seen each other every day and I couldn't be more grateful to One Direction for giving me the opportunity to meet her and become so close to her!
  • What’s your favourite song in a foreign language?

My favourite song in a foreign language is Avenir by Louane!
